Peter Mohrbacher is a surrealist fantasy artist based in Florida who is best known for his work on Magic: The Gathering from 2011 to 2014, creating every card type. He also created the concepts for Return to Ravnica and Theros sets, helping to design the characters and creatures. Since then, Mohrbacher’s focus has been on his personal brand, Angelarium — wondrous interpretations of angels from various mythologies and cultures.
“I’m on a mission to help other artists pull away from a shrinking commercial market and guide them to build their own creations.”
Mohrbacher is a trail-blazer as an indie artist in the illustration world. The launch of his independent fantasy illustration project and book, Angelarium, which he has worked on full time for over four years now, has paved the way for independent illustrators across the world to pursue their own creative dreams. He has been creating digital artworks in Photoshop for over 20 years, even predating the actual introduction of paint tools within the program.
Mohrbacher’s style is vivid, fantastical and undeniably distinct— It transports us to beautiful, mythological worlds full of color and delicately depicted characters.
Mohrbacher’s artworks are some of the earliest artworks to ever have been minted on MakersPlace, but it wasn’t until recently that his works were discovered by collectors. The rest is history. This month, Mohrbacher sold over $17K+ in artworks for his genesis Zodiac series, with his editions selling for $300+.
Now that Mohrbacher has officially been bitten by the Crypto Art bug, he vows to offer something grander. Enjoy what remains of his early artworks while you still can, this OG illustrator will be taking his digital artworks to the next level in the coming months.
New Artwork Releases: Azrael & Malkuth
Mohrbacher has released two mystifying artworks, which serve as a prelude to the unveiling of his newest series next year. These special creations depict an ethereal angel and the foundational structure from which the angel realm hangs — the tree of life. Both artworks highlight the depth and hypnotic beauty of Mohrbacher’s signature fantasy style.
Malkuth — Emanation of the Kingdom
Malkuth — Emanation of the Kingdom, is the first artwork in Mohrbacher’s upcoming series, Emanations of the Tree of Life which digitally revisits Mohrbacher’s The Emanations series. This series acted as the foundational precursor to Mohrbacher’s signature Angelarium, revealing the underlying worlds and back story behind the fantastical Angel world.
